Not sure you could ever design your own game? This event is for you! Come on down for an afternoon of fast-paced game design and prototyping. See what you can come up with! You’ll be put into groups and randomly given mechanics and a theme to incorporate into your game. We’ll provide all the dice, cards, boards, bits and other materials you could possibly need for your prototype. Bootcamp is an amazing experience for all involved. If you can only attend one CUDO Plays event this season, try to make it this one! Facebook event

CUDO Plays Recommends
This week CUDO Plays recommends Petrichor.
Petrichor is the earthy scent produced when rain falls on dry soil. In this game the players move clouds with water droplets, and then rain those droplets onto specific fields, to make sure they have the right amount of water for the Harvest. During a Harvest, crops that have been watered enough are scored! Players are able to influence when, and how often the harvest happens. Players need to strike a fine balance between maintaining control of the different fields as well as influencing Harvest, to make sure the two come together at the optimal time.
